Bisexual Health Awareness Month (#BiHealthMonth), led annually by the Bisexual Resource Center (BRC), raises awareness about the bisexual+ (bi, pansexual, fluid, queer, etc.) community’s social, economic, and health disparities; advocates for resources; and inspires actions to improve bi+ people’s well-being.
Now in its 35th year, the Bisexual Resource Center proudly presents the 7th annual #BiHealthMonth campaign. Lasting throughout the month of March, the theme of this year’s campaign is resilience. The bisexual+ community makes up the majority of the LGBTQ community and experiences significantly higher rates of physical, sexual, social, and emotional violence and disparities than gay and straight people, as well as worse physical, mental, and social health. In the face of these high hurdles, bisexuals+ have always persisted: shaping history, organizing alongside vulnerable communities, and defying odds. We weather storms under the bisexual+ umbrella, an encompassing term for anyone attracted to more than one gender, regardless of what labels they use. An umbrella that makes room for everyone’s unique identities and experiences is the best tool for increasing our community’s wellness.
